Sweet lassi is a drink popular in the subcontinent. Its origin is from India and is a household drink in the scorching summer heat or cool winter nights in Pakistan, India and Bangladesh.

We too love making lassi as it’s a refreshing yoghurt drink that helps cool the stomach and provide nutrition with fresh ingredients!

How To Make Sweet Lassi?

Start by adding the milk, yoghurt, sugar, whipping cream and ice cubes to the blender. Blend these until it reaches a smooth and luscious consistency.

To finish, serve into tall glasses and top with unsalted butter.

Add Ons To Your Lassi

Chopped Nuts: Chopped up mixed nuts add an enjoyable nutty earthiness and crunch to your deliciously thick and creamy glass of lassi. You can get a whole mixed nut jar and chop them up in your kitchen to your preference!

Cardamom Powder: Green cardamom powder adds another dimension of freshness and flavour to your sweet lassi. Just crush your desired amount of cardamom seeds and pod using a mortar and pestle or get the pre-crushed type.

Cumin Seeds: Roast two teaspoons (or as you desire) amount of whole cumin seeds and grind them up into a fine powder. Top off your lassi with the cumin seed powder or add it directly into the blender for a boost of earthy flavour.

Fun Variation To Try While Making This Sweet Lassi

Strawberry Lassi

Freeze a cup of strawberries overnight and blend them up with the rest of the ingredients for a thick and fruity summery drink. Freezing the strawberries ensures a thick and creamy lassi instead of a runny consistency.

Mango Lassi

As said above freeze a cup of diced mangoes and simply blend them up with the rest of the ingredients. You can also buy precut frozen fruit, just blend it with the rest of the ingredients!

Banana Lassi

A great way of incorporating bananas into your diet is making a glass of sweet lassi out of them. Add them to the blender with milk, sugar, heavy cream and yoghurt and blend them up. Just remember to freeze them beforehand to ensure the creaminess and lusciousness of the lassi. You can use fresh fruit as well it will give a slightly runny texture.

Mint Lassi

Add a few sprigs of fresh mint to the blender with the rest of the ingredients and blend them up. This extremely refreshing drink is perfect for you to cool down during the summer days.

Healthy Substitutes

Milk Substitutes

Instead of using whole milk, you can use oat milk, soy milk or any other nut milk you prefer if you are vegan or trying to cut back on dairy. The same goes for the yoghurt. Feel free to use any vegan substitutes for yoghurt like coconut yoghurt etc. Just remember that you won’t get the same amount of richness that you get from the whole dairy milk.

Sugars You Can Use

You can use cane sugar instead of regular granulated sugar. Honey also works well to sweeten your lassi. If you are vegan you can use maple syrup or agave nectar.

Cream Vegan Substitute

Instead of using heavy whipping cream, you can also use half and half or if you want vegan substitutes you can always go for coconut cream.

How To Store Leftover Sweet Lassi?

Have some leftover lassi from the batch you just made? Don’t fret just transfer it to an airtight jar or jug with a cover and store it in your fridge, it’s better to consume it fresh but this will stay fresh for up to 2 days! Just give it a whirl in the blender before consuming!
